  1. Spencer Ware 2018 Outlook

    RB1 is pretty crazy expectations, especially right out of the gate. KC didn't need Ware for 20+ touches and probably feel they need to build him up to it a little. 15 touches and a TD is great for the first week. Baltimore will be a tougher task next week but I expect to see Ware catching a few more balls going forward - he is capable of 3-4 catches and 30-40 yards along with 15-20 carries.

    This is a frustrating thread to follow. A bad game and the sky is falling. You guys all see the upside and potential - he can put up better games than anyone currently on your wire. My advice: If you play in a 6 team league, you can drop him for someone more consistent. If you player in a league of 8/10+ teams he is a hold. Keep in mind that he is foul prone still so picking matchups doesn't hurt either. If he is starting against a really good PF then maybe you consider sitting him with the thought he might get into early foul trouble trying to guard them.

    They def are looking at at least one more year before playoffs. Holiday has a good chance to end the year on another team given his 1 year 5 mil contract. I'd add Dunn to those 3 names - he is a legit piece for them going forward. Jabari will still get minutes but they won't be consistent. I can see games of 17-18 min, I can see games of 26-28 min. I expect him closer to 20-22 mpg then 28-30 mpg and that could be a decent size hit.

    Maybe he gets a few SF minutes but he will lose more PF minutes than he will gain SF minutes. Justin Holiday is going to continue to start there. He is a better defender and a better 3 pt shooter than Jabari (still might not be a bad thing to sell high on him either). Lets also consider that aside from Markkanen coming back to take 30 minutes per game the bulls also have portis on his way back and Kris Dunn. Portis likely takes some C minutes but also a few PF minutes as well and Kris Dunn is at PG but that means LaVine doesn't play any PG minutes and takes more SG minutes. The shift in minutes are going to hurt Jabari no matter how you swing it. Dunn, LaVine, Markkanen and WCJ are the only ones safe with their minutes.

    Such a good, efficient scorer. The added 3 pointer was much needed. Aside from assists he helps you everywhere. He is very close to a 50/40/90 guy (51/46/88) while also being close to a 1-1-1 guy (1.7-0.9-0.8). Roto owners must be thrilled and as an owner of him in h2h I'm quite happy as well!

    Trae looks special too. For me, JJJ was the #2 pick in a rookie draft behind Ayton and even then I felt JJJ had the higher ceiling. Ayton's floor is just too good to pass on him at 1st overall I think. Could be a special class for bigs!
  7. Jaren Jackson Jr. 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    A team that trades for JJJ will have to be a rebuilding team that is willing to give up more value to get the younger player. The list is pretty small of players I'd take for him 1 for 1 in either of my leagues. One is a salary league where we use the same contracts players have in real life. JJJ is worth even more in that league and the list of players I'd take for him is even smaller. JJJ is already elite in blocks. One of only 7 players averaging over 2 per game. The best game comparison (fantasy) going forward could be AD. Not saying he will ever be the level of AD. 30-13-5 seems insane to expect from JJJ and I personally see him more around a 20-10-3 guy. But the comparison fits as a big that can do it all, fill it up in every category and dominate a couple. JJJ should be able to put up points in a number of ways, the rebounding numbers will surely go up as long as he doesn't become a perimeter big on offence all the time (although the 3's are nice) and he shows the ability to make the right passes and control the game even at his young age. Even the FT% should climb as he shows capable of someone who will be able to shoot them at a higher % than current.
  8. Jaren Jackson Jr. 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I own him in 2 dynasty leagues and he is pretty close to untouchable in both. In a 16 team dynasty I traded Khris Middleton at the draft to get him. Had a couple people questioning at the time but I doubt anyone is right now. It's going to take something serious from a smart manager (and I assume anyone that added JJJ knows what they are doing). It might be too much to make sense. That's where I am with JJJ - nobody is untouchable but the offer has to be great, borderline stupid for me to be moving this kid right now.
  9. Jaren Jackson Jr. 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Yeah I agree. He has been top 20 these past 2 weeks thanks to 3.0 blks, 1.1 stls and 1.3 treys per game over that stretch. Add in essentially 15-5-2 on 60% shooting. Probably going to be one of those guys that is better in fantasy than reality. Not sure he will ever be a star in the NBA even though he could be a first round pick in fantasy. Think Shawn Marion. Very good NBA player, great fantasy player.
  10. Jaren Jackson Jr. 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Or with pick 7 in a rookie draft. I think he has the highest upside of any rookie in the class and I'm very high on guys like Ayton, Bamba and Bagley as well. JJJ just looks like a guy that can average 2+blks 1+stls 1+treys while also averaging 20ppg. I think he was passed on for a number of other rookies because I don't think most of us expected him to start so soon or to have as big of a role as he does. I'm ready to take the bad any given night because I've seen the good and it's really really good. He has 6 combined blks/stls in 4 of his last 8 games. Who else besides AD or Giannis are you getting games of 3stls and 3 blks? I don't think he has that kind of ceiling for the NBA, but his fantasy game could push close to that elite level.
  11. Jaren Jackson Jr. 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Take the bad with the good. He is a must hold because you see what the kid does when he stays out of foul trouble. Each game will be different but I expect this growing pain to get better as the season progresses. Maybe he isn't a must start every night if you have someone else you could put in his place, but I think he is def a must hold. I think he will be on a lot of championship teams this year.
  12. Trey Burke 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I think Crowder would have to go to get Burke. Especially if it doesn't make you too weak at SF/PF. Burke has been a top 20 player in 9 cat leagues the last 7 days. I'm sure he cools off as he can't maintain 26-3-4 1+stl 2+treys and 59% from the field, but if he can keep getting the minutes he can still be very useful and roster worthy in even the smallest of leagues. I'm not even worried if he starts or not. Having the load of the 2nd unit might be better than playing in the starting lineup and logging a ton of minutes next to THJ. This man only needs 24-25 mpg to do damage.
  13. Jaren Jackson Jr. 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Hope you took my advice and didn't cut bait after! Followed up a 15-6 and 5blk game with a 20-7 3stls 3blks 2 treys game. I understand not everyone plays in deep 16-20 team leagues but you def want to hang onto upside because it usually pays off in the end.
  14. Andrew wiggins 2018-19 Season Outlook

    18-4-1-2-1 and 3 treys per game over his last 4. If he can keep the stocks coming (more than capable and the min are going to be there) then I don't see why he can't exceed his draft position (around pick 100). The FG% will increase as will the points.
  15. Andrew wiggins 2018-19 Season Outlook

    Can be frustrating to watch at times. A little too passive. The frustrating part is that he is so immensely talented that he can take over a lot of games and stands back and lets someone else do it. I was really excited for Jimmy Butler coming over last year because I figured he would take Wiggins under his wing. I think Jimmy did the opposite of that. If anything Butler has stunted Wiggens' growth. Butler needs to go and Towns and Wiggins need to be brought into a meeting and told 'This is your team'. My fear is that this kid might waste all his talent and never reach near his potential. The crazy thing is that there will still be several 20+ppg seasons even if he never gets better than he is right now.
